    Sounds like they might not be perfectly level

    Rondell...Is it level on the floor...should have little legs that will help with that. Many times I may fill too full with items and they get on the same side and cause mine to "walk"!

    The main reason for this is...the machine has not been installed it needs the feet adjusting to level the machine and also not able to rock from corner to corner...IT can also happen if there is too small a load in the just 1 or 2 items ,throwing it off balance.......trusting this is of assistance.....

    Feet need to be adjusted. They do go out of adjustment over time from use. Make sure it's level side to side and front to back. Use a torpedo level while adjusting. Overloading and underloading can cause clothing to bunch to one side during spin cycle causing vibration. Rubber pads under feet can dampen some vibration.

    Adjust the feet to level the machine. You could put a rubber mat under the feet.

    Hardware or appliance store has rubber things to put under the legs of appliances that bounce, walk and are noisy. We bought some but found that putting a rubber mat under the washer and having it leveled helped with our problem.
